Mild temperatures continue today, but the heat gets dialed up starting tomorrow.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of just 22ºC this afternoon, with a mix of sun and cloud, plus northwesterly winds at about 30 km/h.
Skies will clear this evening, and the winds will drop — as will the temperature, down to nearly single digits, with a pre-dawn low of 10ºC expected.
Tomorrow should be sunny, with a high of 26ºC, followed by a few clouds and a high of 28ºC on Thursday. There's the chance of a few showers on Thursday, too.
The weekend looks glorious, with Friday being sunny and seeting a high of 25ºC, then sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday as well. Saturday could see a high of 26ºC and Sunday will be a scorcher, at 30ºC.
Monday will continue the heat streak, with sunny skies and a forecast high of 29ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is 25ºC; the normal low is 13ºC.
The hottest it's ever been on a July 8 was in 1979, when it hit 34.6ºC. The coldest ever was in 2003 when it was 4.1ºC.
